A Bench challenge and an orchid
A gentle day, on the north east coast of England. My friends and I amble along, in search of a bench where we can sit for a while, admiring the view.
A good-looking bench, but facing the wrong way
Ah, here it is! Spotlit so we can’t miss it
It’s not a perfect day, but pleasant, in a very English way. The kind of day when it’s good to be on a cliff top bench, gazing out to sea. After a while we ease ourselves up and carry on.
These posts frame the bay beautifully
And they tell a story
Of the rocks and shells
Which make up this coastline
At this time of year small orchids radiate out from the grass. Careful not to tread on them, I kneel down for a closer look. Pretty, aren’t they?
I’m astonished at the colour!
I don’t think I’ve seen this shade before
Though its paler friend is prolific
Blending with the golden trefoil around the quarry
When our walk is done I carry on down to the small marina at Seaham, looking for a sheltered spot where I can read. There must be a bench or two?
This one might do- no back rest, though
This one’s much more fun, but maybe not very comfortable!
Careful not to upset Judge Jude by breaking any rules, I’ve been quite subtle with my post processing of Benches. But I just had to give Lunapic one more whirl. What do you think? All of the images except for the last one were done in Ulead Photo Express, in quite an old version.
It’s Saturday again so it must be time to find your six words. Pop along and share them with Cate at Show My Face. Have a great weekend and I’ll see you on Monday for a walk.
